Question: Do I have to become a member to play and enjoy the games?

Question: Why do I get a flash plug-in install screen rather than a game?
Answer: You might not have the latest version of the 'Flash Plug-in' installed for your web-browser. 'Play Games Arcade' requires the Flash Player plug-in to fully enjoy the site and play the free internet games. 'Flash' is a very widely used player that provides us powerful capabilities to make your site experience more enjoyable. All the games on 'Play Games Arcade' use the 'Flash Plug-in'.
You can download the latest 'Macromedia Flash Player' from here: Adobe Flash Plugin
Question: Why does a game not display or I just see a blank screen?
Answer: Some games are large in size and could take a while to load, depending on your connection speed. While the game is loading it may just display a white or black screen, just give them some time. Most games will have a progress bar and may display an advert while loading. Please be patient, because in general those games come with better graphic quality! If it still seems stuck after a while, try refreshing the page which will reload it.
Question: How do I get up on the 'Top Players' list?
